3 Choices (in pictures)
Returning to the dilemma I am faced with of having three choices for my right leg/foot today I bring a pictorial look at my options, so everyone can see what I will be left with.
TRANS-TIBIAL (BELOW-KNEE) AMPUTATION
Each choice has it's pro's and con's and wildly different recovery times, and currently I am leaning towards the trans-tibial amputation as if further in the future anything goes wrong with the other two choices I will have to be amputated anyway, so why not just get it out of the way as soon as possible. The only thing is I have grown quite attached to my foot over the last 40+ years and, even though it is pretty fucked, I would be sorry to see it go. (I wonder if they will preserve it, put it in a glass display case and let me bring it home).
